Staff of the Mohinani Group cleaning the Prof. Atta Mills High Street
The Mohinani Group Limited, manufacturers of tyres and plastic products, organized clean-up exercise in some parts of Accra last Saturday.
The exercise, which took place simultaneously at Osu Oxford Street, James Town and Avenor, among others, formed part of activities marking the Group’s 50th anniversary.
It was carried out in partnership with the Environmental Services Providers Association (ESPA) to support the National Sanitation Day (NSD) campaign.
Addressing journalists during the clean-up exercise along the Prof. Atta Mills High Street, Marketing Manager of Somotex Ghana Limited, a subsidiary of the Mohinani Group, said the clean-up was aimed at managing waste in the country.
Frank Mickson-Yeboah said as part of the anniversary celebration themed: ‘Celebrating Our Past Inspiring Our Future,’ the Group which owns the KFC franchise under its Mascos Food brand, has launched a recycling campaign for about 5,000 pupils in the Ashanti and Greater Accra regions.
The campaign, which will take the form of a competition, will educate pupils and their communities on waste management, he said.
Head of Research, Training and Development, Lambert Klu, told BUSINESS GUIDE that his outfit had partnered several private entities in the past to embark on clean-up exercises.
The Mohinani Group, which was established in the country 50 years ago, has several subsidiaries such as Polykraft, Polytank, PolyProducts, Electromat, Somoco, Uniworld, among others.
